On In Praise Of Editors, Or In This Case, Editor

Such a wonderful person and editor that even when she was killing ideas or phrases that I dearly loved, I was THANKFUL. Wait, she's like a Jedi editor! A Jeditor!

In addition, she reunited me with long-lost fellow lineman Ben Choi, for which I will be eternally grateful.

Gonna miss you around here, CAAF, but can't wait to see more from you.

On Hollywood, Stop Botching Your Third Movies

@Multiphasic These are not unfair criticisms! But (to me) they are blips in an overall terrific film. The Ent scenes in The Two Towers were boring as Hell until they culminated in the battle at Isengard. Stuff like that is distracting, but it's not a fundamental flaw in the DNA of the movie. Like the entire plot of Alien3 was, or the terrible acting AND lame plot of The Godfather Part III. Those films were doomed from the get-go, and weren't strong enough to overpower the weaker sub-elements like RotK.

Similarly, one might argue that Jedi was, overall, a good enough movie to overcome Ewoks and Han and Lea awkwardly making out. The speeder bike scene alone might have been worth it.

@Mr. B I don't interpret trilogies necessarily as having a plan at the outset, only that they have a deliberate beginning-middle-end structure to the storytelling. There are a lot of other storylines, to be sure, but The Godfather was about Michael Corleone: it begins with his involvement in the family business, taking it over, and it ends with his death. That's a trilogy in my book.

Not like, say, the Police Academy franchise.
